5 gallons a week would be an excellent PWC amount.

Coralline needs to be seeded in the tank. Does any of your existing LR have any coralline on it? If so you`ll be OK if not then you`ll need to get a piece of LR with some on it. You calcium, alk and Magnesium parameters need to be up to snuff for coralline to grow good. Also be careful what you wish for LOL because once it starts growing it will cover everything including tank ,LR and equipment.
